As a companion to your new student packet, you will find links to all the information you need to get ready for your first day of class.
Before Orientation begins on Friday, August 22 there are a few things you will need to do. Visit the checklist to download the required forms and review the important deadlines you must meet before then.
In early August you will receive an email from Residential Education & Housing Services, which will include your housing assignment. The residence halls will open for first-year and transfer students at 8 a.m. on Friday, August 22.
Over the summer, make sure to also complete your first-year summer reading assignment, The Speech: The Story Behind Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream by Gary Younge. You can find this book on Amazon and at other booksellers. The Speech will lay the foundation for a year-long campus-wide discussion of emancipation as a goal of human activity, in the U.S. and around the globe, in the past, present, and future.
Have a wonderful summer. We can't wait to meet you!
